    Stopped in for a late lunch while in town for a long weekend celebrating my birthday. Fantastic food and service as always. And I enjoyed my chocolate mousse dessert with a chorus of happy birthday. Appreciate always being able to count on the consistent excellent food and service.

    We were strongly encouraged by staff to get the prix fixed, pre-theatre dinner menu. Food was mediocre at best, stale tasting bread in my french onion soup, salmon was tasty and cooked well overall, dessert was okay, lacked flavor, meal lacked depth, but certainly was convenient to theater.

    Went for Restaurant Week before an evening of theatre. They also had a prix fixe option for $10 more than the RW menu with an even wider selection, which is what we chose. It was really a delightful meal in a cozy warm environment. The food was quite good and the service was attentive.

    The food was very good, but even with the special Restaurant Week menu, it is still a bit pricey, running over $100 per person when you add on a glass of wine each, cappuccinos and tax and tip.

    The food and service was good. They did not bring out the Nicolas Feuillatte champagne that I ordered off of the wine list. They brought out something else and they had no intention of telling us. Once I pointed it out, they said oh yeah this is what we have in the half bottle. Well that’s not what’s on the menu or what I ordered…. I did not appreciate the bait and switch. Not very professional. I know my champagne.

    We went for lunch at 12 noon. We have been there a number of times but not since Covid. It was excellent in every way - food, service, wine etc. We had a 3 pm play time and therefore wanted a casual lunch which is exactly what we got. All courses were outstanding and I’m a foodie!! The Flan was the best I ever had and I’ve had it in 5-6 countries that say they invented it

    Wonderful first time at Le Rivage. Since other long standing bistros closed in the general area (Tout Va Bien and Pergola des Artistes--both lost to the pandemic) I did not have a reliable unpretentious French bistro to go to when in town on business. Now I do. Very friendly service. Wonderful food. Added benefit that this is restaurant week and their special menu was outstanding--endive salad, slow braised leg of lamb, poached pear with ice cream. Perfect sized portions and excellent wine by the glass selection. Highly recommended!!

    The food was good but it was very highly priced. I did not realize at booking, that everything is prix fix. I could not order ala carte.

    Le RivageResponded on January 21, 2023Very sorry to hear that your only complaint was having to order from the 3 course prix fix, unfortunately we’ve only been this pretheater for over 40 years. $70 dollars for a French 3 course dinner with expensive proteins is beyond generous. It’s our experience that we can not afford people holding up a table at prime time with just one dish, you will see that other establishments that offer a La carte have a much higher price point for individual dishes. Your poor review is not fair.

    I discovered Le Rivage on a business trip while staying in Times Square. What a gem. I dined here two nights in a row although there are hundreds of options within a mile. I highly recommend this long standing establishment that will certainly prove to you why they’ve survived COVID. I think we’re only a short time from considering this restaurant a NYC institution.

    This was an absolutely spectacular customer service experience. We are cautious about Covid so made an outdoor reservation. We were the only patrons outdoors. They turned on all of the heaters for us and were very responsive throughout the meal. Could not have been more gracious and it was very comfortable, even on a very cold day. The food was delicious and quite reasonable for 3 courses.
